! "Soils that are repeatedly wetted and dried and that contain clays with a large capacity for expansion tend to crack widely and deeply, allowing topsoil particles and organic materials to fall into lower soil layers, so that over time the whole soil is turned over [...]. This process is called peloturbation". See also fig. 1.15!

"... various deformational processes, which are subdivided here into (1) endogenic processes resulting in endoturbations; (2) gravity-dominated processes resulting in graviturbations, which can be subdivided further into (2a) astroturbations, (2b) praecipiturbations, (2c) instabiloturbations, (2d) compagoturbations and (2e) inclinaturbations; and (3) exogenic processes resulting in exoturbations, which can be further subdivided into (3a) bioturbations with subcategories (3a) phytoturbations, (3a) zooturbations and (3a) anthropoturbations (3b) glaciturbations, (3c) thermoturbations, (3d) hydroturbations, (3e) chemoturbations, and (3f) eoloturbations. ..."
